The importance of Open Source Geospatial Labs in widening Geospatial education worldwide Suchith Anand, University of Nottingham, UK Charlie Schweik, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA Helena Mitasova, North Carolina State University Maria Antonia Brovelli, Politecnico di Milano, Italy Serena Cotezee, University of Pretoria, South Africa Phil Davis, GeoTech Center, Delmar College, USA Patrick Hogan, NASA, USA Raphael Moreno, University of Colorado, Denver, USA Jeremy Morley, University of Nottingham, UK Although there has been tremendous growth in geospatial science over the last decade, the number of universities offering teaching in geospatial science in developing countries is very low. There are number of factors for this including high cost of software, lack of trained staff etc. But with the advent and maturity of free and open source geospatial software many universities in developing countries across the world will be establishing courses in geospatial science in the next few years. It was with this bigger mission in mind that in Sep 2011, the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) and the International Cartographic Association (ICA) signed an MoU with the aim of developing on a global basis collaboration opportunities for academia, industry and government organizations in open source GIS software and data. Within a span of one year, we now have established labs across the planet in 6 continents . We have now grown to 20 research labs across the world (6 in Europe, 3 in North America, 3 in South America, 4 in Asia, 3 in Africa and 1 in Australia). The three main aims of the ICA-OSGeo Lab Network are to provide expertise and support for the establishment of Open Source Geospatial Laboratories and Research Centers across the world for supporting development of open-source geospatial software technologies, training and expertise ; to provide support for building-up and supporting development of open source GIS training materials; to enable development of collaboration opportunities for academia, industry and government organizations in open source GIS for the purpose of creating a sustainable ecosystem for open source GIS globally. The availability of free and open source GIS will make possible for large number of universities especially in developing countries to also start courses in geospatial science. This will in true sense bring down the entry barrier for many students especially in developing countries to learn GIS. The’s education and curriculum committee has a significant history of collaboration and established significant social capital among the network of participants. but up until now, we have only been able to achieve collaboration in the form of individual posts of metadata and links to educational material [2]. With the emergence of this lab network model, coupled with the right incentives, we are confident that this network can do more collectively on the education front, and we have not yet formed closer collaborative ties in the area of open geospatial application and research. Recently the authors listed above have been collaborating on a grant proposal to establish a new effort for this open geospatial lab network that mimics open source software collaboration and that includes three key components: (1) a coordinated teaching program; (2) a repository and a system for the management of new derivatives; and (3) a organized cross-node research program focusing on applications of open geospatial technologies to support local governance and management in several key environmental management areas. In this presentation, we will describe elements of this proposal, partly in an effort to encourage others at FOSS4G to consider joining in the effort, and to solicit other collaborative ideas from the audience.

the introduction of genetic disease to show some of the expenses the danger is that in addition to the agency having the in establishing person's used to with the right sort of of this debt is that this was 1 and that was just the kind of thing but it is the moment in the history and and the age of 100 system and England in his 1st emissions lapse in universities and
so that is key to making version of and the game key mission for all of us in the coming days to make decision edition accessibility and that's how we start on this kind of thing that you can be sure it was his and in addition to the issues can start Jess programs and if you think about it in Mohammed was the same for some of the country's current of justice now but if you actually but it would invest in the team and and thanks to the huge community community and that was just after the number of fish and make sure you have been with his can stop the changes and the majority of them were education solos of which some of the things that I need to keep a sense
that the game was only to ask his wife you might not even be there by the end of the billions of tools of those decisions so that all the good that has until remediation emitting use primarily socialist wanted me to do about it because of the injuries to data from the demanding resisted the charity's could manage to be should by the and it is as though the 2 days following the right so that this can be done about it and it will not be education is very important the precise on making use of the love of her life and University the of the some of the some of the GCSE community said significant use if you using them into the new year with a view to see them in the publicity and the new owner of the most based in Spain but they had contesting the the of of September when the early indications are that they have something to do with it but the programme it is and where he is and how they have the ability and the review of those of you don't know and don't think in the end of South America and they have been using began to me from the sea in the distance and the thing that made it through to the rest of the event was restaurant the see in the city of this
type of schools across the country residence in order to provide the idea of education and the distance between the 2 sides had been used only geographic information for students in schools and this is a very big success and has been impressed by the people working in that his views of the stuff from the and the Government is that it has going bust and other things we are not ruling is trying to consider that the men in the business of the Spanish or things that will be administered but it translated into English in the country is this was the start of using it and the other ideas for taking a walk in the woods and
use the summer in the city of the have based on focus on all over the kitchen missiles to 70 per cent of programme because it was the availability of high 17 with the group and the and the mission of the US and we have to make sure that this is now has been that there was and is not just a region of the world the disturbances in squad and the and the and the suspension of contributing to the community in the region is so that it is made will be the allowed to continue and this is happening in the rest of it is like someone from this seems to be another yes of Polish it is happening in the other and that that the advent of the Internet for the next Monday to attend depend on I have read about it and this was deemed to be as so just coming to the
game from the start of the World Service is back on the issues of the city to join the band and the ISI and the rules Jarislowsky publicity but this is more of this and even as the US and the indictment of the respect in the system time and it as conditions aggressive and is the 3rd in the World Cup and European gigantic information science and it is believed it was all over said globalisation and is of most of his career to the commission's that was the it is going out of the state conditions are the from of the and yet science to later admitted that the situation to a popular figure of at the property the usability is available broadened of different specific is being and and and his most of the game mission is to protect the publications has no doubt that the UK and the and the system and it was an indication of the lack the heat of versions of the same and that of the of the background of the seeds and actually to the commission on Tuesday technologies for the iciest and begins to be
of the order of the day and the community that will see the release of a new order in the High and and this is where the UK is set to present stance and I can see are the 1 exception which should number have of private has been and the key thing was in even from the rest emissions on the deal of with the rest of his admission is to the gravity of the the effort and the family says that the use and education is the key to emissions you just don't see brought by the Justice of images of the British community in a seat that
had been due to the dusty back of the system at the end of last year and this year has signed a to the gravity and that it was the dedication of of the wanted because the new year as the head of the I had to make sure you get a lot of of the new system will be put it access to use the issue and that the and it is a thousand times from the eyes of ICI and on from the fuel was and that will send them to end the stand at the end of the system but of the 2 could not opportunities for a description of what it used to being a non distinguished is but industry-government the and to get that the end and that they need to establish finding that it is time to because it that and we have to be made in that you can have an idea of how the holiday in the US it is the home of how high the ability to express but that some of the genes in order to establish and as a because the family was not immediately seemed to what it was and is an owner of a just didn't have been reduced by the set in City was that the world litigation this was that the city had interest in the publication of the list of the said it and it is that have the British and roads and by some distance the conference thanks to bat from the sea and the chance about approach to the University of the House of the the and the flight and the back of the head back to the regions and sections and has been published in the next month or so so so that the nature of the problems is that a strong British practical to serve the rest of the cast and the and the rest of the community
Keegan's about the same time the city was the start established resistance to the charities and this was giants and 2nd there has to be because I was interested to light and the rest of the problem so that he can win against the having working on for the last 2 used to
dozens of this summer they did this to me was that I had established that in the and that the country is the biggest in the same year says 6 laps now but the mass in Europe has been the biggest of the in Europe but we are hoping that the rules around and he was a bit of waste and other groups in the list is the company a unit and then that they having a bit of a go at at the moment I'm really and eating the across the board and then the next step in the 100 has established in which is across the road and the gravity of this year agreement was described as a list including is because it is this that would get into the and the in a new book on the evidence
so far that he did a stint as an adult fastback and has been backed by the United States the number in each of the new framework for the rest at the the the kitchen and the and the and the future and in the end of the 1st inning of the 1st derivative but it is not musician who centre of the Solidification and from the start from the 2nd leg of his tour of duty and I know that from the beginning in the early days it was a game that is about to begin their work on the system and that it was American of active and sustained the and look the socio that state officials said the dead man but if you have a product it is about the size of the supremacy of the product and the and the party funding and the end of the novel and the organisers of a real estate that they need to make sure that the products are being for and so that is a good news for the rest of the community and the media and the public has a good because of the socialist by the need to make sure you know how it occasions but access of sir in the US
and other examples in the Clinton is the most interesting of the system and that the only thing that the opening night of the year that that was a big man the and the the road and that was really the the bid for the game and it was not until now is thanks to the division of the communication and that's the thing the wanted which could make sure that happens in the specially occasion as the did it just
use some accent is received accept that in the eyes the world as it is the same is happening in in Dublin you get some of it has been the victory was Baghdad with us and that the agreement had been standard women action by the end of the debt and said that the university and that we have to make sure that he was that the and they should this action plan and in and out of the it
England and it's a man but they can be as a bad and it is implemented and is the only way to see the city's Fallujah demanded that the Prime Minister was 1 of the 1st half of this year and the case of the dead and the beauty of this is a big big moment for the Government to make sure we do the best we can get that in the case of the and not only using reducing the constant using cities but also in using locations innovation and efficiency and
a lot of things happening in the world that some of the universities and in the ability of the police force and the things as well as this is going to come from a study of an
HSBC lessons not just the country originated Sapone across the road and just some of the gunmen from you to the best in history to win from a certainty that this is happening is
happening and and that is good news for consumers disputed Asian because that means used investment company universities to start a bidding each and and you have been there is only to say that if it did it would be no signs that this was the size and signs that the the data showing the operation of the day and it is fundamental to the way said the incident had but it was also the status and open it up to date version of the test and the United Nations and beside so that it is due we decided to have a duty and a lot of things but the data and make sure it is going to them and they can make a big understand and the Spencer conditions on the and in best because of the new movie is not just that we don't need to be invested because of the lack of this happening in the the sink and the injustices standards especially in the grounds and the opening of initiatives from governments as from the US and the UK which was once a close to the end August the majority of them so far and the rest
of the set and the rest nature testing to because the suggested stadium as and shops are even something said that it did not stop being just about the most continues to use of the year it is just the beginning to of the limited to do so that they could and and the and the and the the and in the history of this
club and this is the head of the 2 types of the disease and that it sounded as though were some that the danger of having to play the last 2 and a half and was established that the assistance of a programme and a intensive and stressed that and the different backgrounds and the latest in the opinion of the
Princess of Wales was a the year of those in shot in the biggest of operation began seemed to have given up their jobs in the new city in Australia and is get there of the change to start specifically programs focused on the a shot and the and and was systems and that is not out of the inning and activities and that
is the steady-going programs and head and neck trade in the chilly programs and instead of being the and that this was that she had by a ban from the City has been a big a success in the shot put and as an example he had a shot to the mesh was a specific you stop in the the last into that the threat the world and visit and later this regions of the globe and offers a around the world and was against the best on is police and they said that this is a good way to make sure against out of a hat and a wrap operations to for the future
and at the end of the 2nd custody and is an example of this in the summer from the rest of not being and said that she had been brought to people from the is not the end of this year foundation from from the industry and is among those positions and is the biggest and the idea was to make sure we start at the end of the application for the future and not just because the
use of the website and absolutely right to spend the rest of the year and a half games at the start of the day having 1 of the most successful in the handling of the programs that a among the guided must programs and and using them as a that of the them all that she did not know what much last and then hoping that this is not just got about that will be debated by the decision of the gases that of the laps and just discovered that said
was this is the best answer is and the information to the analyst and said to is that in the cases of the deadly establishing Anthony distances based on top of that these were the building last is the 2nd anniversary and just 6 back and was
and not the of the established that the have latest offer was on a hiding Computing of the Big Data was committed and and the sense based on Monday and the big so it's just any of that happening in
and I'm interestingly was the city and this was less than that of the period and the and she has been a key player in which it has been working to on so that indications that pictures and the world to promote about what was especially in education and the services in the UK said that the doubling of the size and weight of a record this year he said An
excerpt from the order of the boot and the and computer but they have numbers of stating that there was some example
selected that they had been successful in the US and in Europe at times last year and that was the dream and was never seen as but the emissions of the students who will be destroyed and that it wouldn't be a good candidate for the future of and but the region is that they had not just been competing and sales but there had been it would be so much bigger than which have been the start of the media and an
estimate of this season the most about the system that we have in the last year and ended the day just add
to the city and the state of the domestic or shops and so that they had the 1st shot of German they had more than 10 laps known in the City generated with and start of establishing a new movements Brazil
and a 2nd from the use of a result that was
even bigger than the team during the medics and their closest and this is indication Williams and shot announced that he would use his head as he has been having gravity without being used is that some disassembles from ideas he of the lads and the and the gravity of the ignominy of being shot the and and you get a good summer is
series of Southampton in the big of the group of the system based on the hazards of the as they
have been released under the science Engineering job the occupied the and they have installed a certain has been the demand and the and the last of these is that the device had been planted on it there have been raised
from the sale of its US the and and that the 2 of them in this year and resist the divisions that have been blamed
on the the weak yen could in the interest of Newcastle at the end of the
business in the UK and US sending
said that this is that some of the money which
has been and now the head of the season mendacious and the and the context of the
last summer of the system and the and the and the the as the had of the sound is not cities and the politically from
the and the violence and said it would be interesting to know what they decided to let them know
that this is expected to be in the to the suspicion that the police in the end there was rejected by and the it is to
begin with and that the money and that has been the the new universities
around the city and it is and the media is bid and less movie and in the future to find the
next at about it looking to establish a 100 was not interested in the best of them because of the game and we expect this to be the capacity of the programs that you no programs and those of the Right and the fact that the than rights of the issue programs legacy with the claims squad is in India and I had said we would not have said that the commission comes out the other side of the said that it didn't have the money to go to university in the city dentist just the and the Bank of England
was that this year history that the collection ministers and so you think you might P the dishes storey questions the only break of the set up to 6 weeks going up but expect to pay 2nd 1 on which the all this the question we just and the 1st year I was in the wrong on are the to Chinese exchange through so that the state for the time 1 accelerated used because of the way we believe I was the scene of the rival bids for the services put so we have a very active on Monday meetings with the way of what the disease the what but then be applied for an earlier focuses on the cost but it is for those of you who was dyslectic which will be reduced him up and said that it is not used the funding for these meetings and the fact that so not be upgraded the stock to its and 1 of the key things that are not the case of the mechanism for us is designed to find a buyer for present in the data on the point of Citigroup and in the last 20 has what signals that people have a say that is because some of the things that is so that we can win the race depending on the time of the season and the funding of the hole they have 47 and Australia based on the facts as they time and so that they can be found at the analyst at all and it is up to attack the idea that this is the sort of place from President which he had not used the used about which is not a one year visiting visit here in the UK of which he was joined by time Livesey's president of the disease and that it will be with support of the views of the city and state would not be at the back of the figures which is the correct term for the new version of Robin Hood and the Liberal picture much of Paul come from
